It looks to me like they have run the numbers and believe Ltd edition bikes with bits of bling bolted on them is where the money is. The RC 800's sold so well the Ltd edition run has been getting fatter and fatter ever since and they've now extended it to the pretty much all the other models they make. As this is RVS#1 expect a #2, #3, #4 etc etc in the not too distant future

I just wish he'd make up his mind, a few years ago he said the special editions confused and diluted the brand and I agree. He wanted to focus on increasing production numbers, now that's all out the window and we are back to limited editions again.

It seems to me, especially with those tyres, they are going after the cool cafe racer market a bit like the R9T.
Personally I'd rather give £25k to a bike builder and say build me something cool with this........?

If it is coming from the factory then it cannot be very personalized so I agree it would be more fun to do it yourself. Not sure how the Dragster 800 engine compares to the RVS, but it seems you could do a lot of customizing for the difference in price

Talking to a sales rep the other day and was told there are conditions to buying them, I.E. must already be a MV owner, order books close at the end of the month and they will make as many as have been ordered then it will be on to RVS #2.
Apparently they have plenty of bling included, cnc parts, titanium exhaust etc.
I do however take salesman talk with a large pinch of salt, so we'll see.

Sound like GC is gearing up to be the Ferrari of the bike world. A client of mine closed a deal and made a heap of $$$, went to try and buy a Ferrari and 'apparently' they won't sell him the car he wanted because that's reserved for current owners of Ferraris. He bought a BMW instead.

I like the offset lights, but I am not a fan of nice street bikes calling themselves dual sport. A KTM EXC is fine on the road, but this bike is not meant for the dirt. Ninety five percent of owners will never get it off the pavement, like me as a previous GS owner. I know there are guys who do, but it is just strange to see a GS getting two feet of air over a mud puddle.

It is like the jeans on the evening news a few weeks ago from Nordstroms that sold for $420 with real mud on them. It is for guys who want to get dirty, but can not seem to find the time.

It is a beautiful bike, though. Anything that is not a CBR 600 look alike, I like. Character.

I like the bike. Even the tires. I can't hit the gravel like that on my F4RR. My impression is it would make a great urban bike.


As far as Ferrari goes, with their limited edition cars, they have required current and loyal ownership to buy one since the F40. An acquaintance of mine got an Enzo because he has bought many Ferraris over a couple of decades and keeps them. The factory decided who got one, not the dealers. They prefer those cars in the hands of loyal collectors, not speculators. The dealers aren't allowed to mark them up over MSRP either.

True but think about it. Enzo's were about $700K back in '04-ish so the dealer might be making $70K tops. There were 11 of them available in the US. They could easily get $1MM plus, plus ,plus if they put it out for auction to their clients. Guys were paying $1MM to the dealer for the GT40 that listed for $500K.
